Scripture at Sunrise 6.7.2017

“When they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, ‘Rabbi, when did You come here?’ Jesus answered them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, you are seeking Me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on Him God the Father has set His seal.'” -John 6:25-27

Scripture at Sunrise 8.18.2015

If you seek Him, He will be found by you… -1 Chronicles 28:9

We need our God; He is to be had for the seeking, and He will not deny Himself to any one of us if we personally seek His face. It is not if thou deserve Him, or purchase His favor, but merely if thou “seek” Him. Those who already know the Lord must go on seeking His face by prayer, by diligent service, and by holy gratitude: to such He will not refuse His favor and fellowship. Those who, as yet, have not known Him to their souls’ rest should at once commence seeking and never cease till they find Him as their Savior, their Friend, their Father, and their God.

What strong assurance this promise gives to the seeker! “He that seeketh findeth.” You, yes you, if you seek your God shall find Him. When you find Him you have found life, pardon, sanctification, preservation, and glory. Will you not seek, and seek on, since you shall not seek in vain’ Dear friend, seek the Lord at once. Here is the place, and now is the time. Bend that stiff knee; yes, bend that stiffer neck, and cry out for God, for the living God. In the name of Jesus, seek cleansing and justification. You shall not be refused. Here is David’s testimony to his son Solomon, and it is the writer’s personal witness to the reader. Believe it and act upon it, for Christ’s sake.

Scripture at Sunrise 11.2.09

Sunday School | 1 John 5:13-21 | Bro. Roger Harden
“I write these things to you who believe in the Name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.  And this is the confidence that we have toward Him, that if we ask anything according to His will He hears us.”  -1 John 5:13-14

We have everything to be thankful for and to be joyful about in Christ because He has given us eternal life.  If He has given us eternal life, rest assured that He will take care of the rest.  (Matthew 6:33)

Morning Worship | 1 Corinthians 3:18-23 | Pastor Steve Wainright
“…you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.”  -1 Corinthians 3:23
Ways to Prevent Division:
1)Don’t be impressed by your own wisdom.  If everyone is submitted to the Word of God, there will be unity.  (vs. 18-20)
2)Prefer teachers who teach truth, who are faithful to God’s Word, are living a godly life and are filled with the knowledge of God.  (vs. 21)
3)Know how to handle your possessions.  God has given us: [a]Some good preachers and good books.  Glean from their knowledge.  [b]The  world.  Only the redeemed child can see the world’s beauty as a gift from the Creator.  [c]Life!  Eternal life!  (John 10:10)  [d]Death.  It ushers us into the very presence of Christ.  (1 Corinthians 15:54-55; Galatians 2:20)  [e]The present.  He’s using all the events in your life to mold you into the image of His Son.  (Romans 8:28; Psalm 119:71,75)  [f]The future.  What’s to come: Heaven!  (Romans 8:17)
vs. 23- If your life is hid with Christ in God, how can there be division?

Evening Worship | Leviticus 6:8-23 | Pastor Steve Wainright
“For our sake He made Him to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.”  -2 Corinthians 5:21
Ponder God’s holiness.  The sinless Son of God became sin for me.  The Creator gave His life for the creature.  Wow!
